Nivelles International EAP Meeting - NI & Ulster Team Selection Policy

Athletics Northern Ireland in conjunction with Ulster Athletics will be taking U23 athletes to this year’s Nivelles International EAP meeting in Nivelles, Belguim on 21 June 2020. Consideration Standards for selection have been set and are listed below. Any athletes eligible to compete for Northern Ireland & Ulster may be considered based on their 2020 indoor and outdoor performance record.

Expression of interest (Closing date 28th April)

Any athlete wishing to compete will be required to submit an expression of interest form online at the following link. We will use this list of athletes when selecting athletes at the beginning of May.

Expression of Interest

Selection Panel

Selections will be made by the Athletics Northern Ireland & Ulster Athletics selection panel comprising

  1. a) A member of Athletics Ulster (Voting)
  2. b) The Athletics Northern Ireland Athlete Development Lead (voting)
  3. c) A representative of the Athletics NI Track and Field Committee (Voting)

This panel will be assisted by

The Athletics Northern Ireland Chairman, who may also (at his discretion) seek assistance (in a non-voting capacity) from anyone else he feels may be of help.

Any voting member of the Selection Panel shall declare his or her conflict of interest in respect of any selection issue and shall not be entitled to vote on that issue.

Selection Process

Selections will be based on performance trajectory of the athlete in previous years, percentages of standards achieved in 2020. If multiple athletes tie on percentages, UK Power of 10 ranking based on performances in 2020 will be used.

Please note that achieving a standard does not guarantee a place on the team. Selection will be based on rankings and therefore the ability to be competitive at this event. Athletes who are close to achieving standards may still be selected if they have a high UK Power of 10 ranking.

Selections will be made on Wednesday 6th May 2020 and announced before Friday 08th May.
